I'm Lauren Nutter and I'm running the 2020 Boston Marathon as a part of the CRI Marathon Team. This gargantuan effort will combine my passion for running, rowing, and raising money for a great cause. I have always been captivated by the Boston Marathon and knew that when I was ready, I'd want to do it for a fantastic organization. CRI brings advocacy and funding to para rowers, including supporting the team bound for Tokyo next year.
Donations starting at $25 receive a FREE Boston 2020 sticker & your name on a commemorative oar!

I'll be sharing all aspects of my training and fundraising on Instagram @MarathonLauren where you can follow along every mile into the finish line.

Fundraising Options|| Let's Get Creative
>> Training M pledge. Pick either meters or miles and I’ll tally all of my training meters and miles since I made the team to give you a final tally of miles run and meters rowed thru Marathon Monday. Pledge an amount per meter (example: 1 cent per km) and/or an amount per mile($1 per mile) to challenge me to rack up more training for a larger donation! Pick a week, pick a month, pledge the whole thing!
I will be ranging from 10,000 - 45,000 meters and 15-60 miles per week throughout my endurance training leading up to the marathon.
>> Race Miles - want to pledge an amount towards each of the 26.2 miles I’ll conquer on race day? I’m ready to see your pledge through to the finish line.
>> Marathon Row - during my training, I will be cross-training with rowing to demonstrate the benefits and ease of access to the sport. Want to chip in to support my marathon row? This 42.2KM event will be a way to build cardio volume, muscle mass, and endurance and should take me less than 4 hours to complete.
>> Matching Gifts - CRI would be a grateful recipient of any organization willing to match your generous commitment! I encourage you to ask your company if they’d match your financial contribution. Many businesses are grateful for end of year opportunities that have a direct connection to their friends and family.

--- About CRI ---
Community Rowing, Inc. (CRI) was founded in Boston in 1985 by a group of Olympic and National Team rowers who wanted to expand access and increase diversity within the sport of rowing. We are now the largest public access rowing organization in the world with more than 12,000 active participants from the Greater Boston area.
Our mission is “Rowing for All” and we make the sport accessible without regard to individual ability, background, experience, or income. We aim to change lives, from the eighth-grader living with food insecurity who finds new stability and connections at CRI, to adults rediscovering what it means to be on a team, to the student with disabilities who develops confidence and a lifelong love of rowing. CRI is the USRowing Para Training Center, the first national training center for rowers with disabilities in the United States, and we are committed to advancing Para Rowing at all levels. Our programs are transformative, inspiring teamwork and cooperation, self-advocacy and drive, and a deep appreciation for our city.
Community Rowing is thrilled to have athletes fundraising for the 2020 Boston Marathon in support of our Para Rowing programs, giving youth and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities an opportunity to experience the profound physical and mental benefits of rowing. Our marathon runners will be providing direct support to CRI’s innovation and advocacy for Para athletes and for the continuing development of our inclusion programs.
